Seminar: Practitioner Research - can it support professional development?
28 April 2008
Professional development is a key theme in recent reforms in the Lifelong Learning sector. CPD is now a mandatory requirement and as such will place demands on already busy workloads. But what does it mean and what potential does this provide for linking practice with reflective research?
This seminar will explore using practitioner research to support professional development using strategic reflective practice. That means thinking critically about what we do and researching it. The day will have examples of practitioner research linked to research projects and action research carried out as part of initial teacher training courses. It will provide a forum to discuss the possibilities and challenges of using practitioner research with those who have done it, those who have supported it and those who have written about it. Bring along your experiences and questions too. You will have the opportunity to gain a NWSfLRF CPD certificate to include in your portfolio.
